Surfacing

Wetpour rubber flooring: a softfall flooring system installed by Gadsby Surface Solutions provides a forgiving, non-slip floor perfectly suited to this space. The coloured rubber particles are mixed with a polyurethane binder and trowelled into place using a steel trowel. Available in plain primary colours or with flecks of other colours throughout the rubber can be moulded to any shape following the contours of the sub-base. The courtyard cost $120 per square metre to lay. The system meets Australian Standards for use beneath children's play equipment and has a range of other uses such as swimming pool surrounds, pathways and beneath trees.
